January 2023 ✨

Happy New Year from First Class A. We spent some time at the beginning of the month setting new goals for 2023.

Our theme for the month of January was ‘Play’. We have been learning about games from the past, active ways to play, the first teddy bear and toys from around the world. 

Show & Tell
Linking in with our monthly theme we had Show and Tell with some of our favourite toys. 

In maths we have been learning about 3-D shapes and we recently started Time. Lots of interactive lessons to grasp these topics. 

Visual Arts 
Grandparents Day falls in January and to celebrate we created these clay tea light holders as a small gift for them. They turned out great. 

As we have been learning about games in the past in History we decided to go outside and play some for ourselves.  – Marbles, skipping, hopscotch and tag.

In science this month we have been doing different experiments. We had lots of fun learning about magnets 🧲 and investigating the different materials that attract them. 

To finish our lesson we designed race cars and using paper clips and magnets we raced the cars along a track. 

Fun in the Snow!

We have been making the most of the snow this week. We are so glad to have our new astro pitch so we can safely play outside in the snow at break time. We even managed to gather enough snow to make a small snowman!

The Hospital

We learned all about how nurses and doctors look after us. We also had a visit from Nurse Angela who told us all about her job and even showed us how to use different instruments.

Viking projects

A snapshot of some of the amazing project work completed by 3rd Class B on the Vikings. Everyone worked so hard on their projects and it was lovely to see them displayed in the hallway. Well done 3rd Class B!

Hands-on learning in Maths

This month in Maths, we have been learning about 3-D shapes. We had great fun making different 3-D shapes out of cocktail sticks and playdough. Through this we discovered how many sides and vertices each shape has. We really enjoyed this Maths lesson!
